Songs For Little Night Explorers
"Songs for Little Night Explorers" recreates nostalgic carefree memories of nighttime explorations with a meld of dreamy ambience and brisk IDM beats.
Pip Craighead returns to Archaic Horizon with "Songs For Little Night Explorers". As the title suggests, this album is a soundtrack for the adventurous night explorations from a youthful past. Nostalgic, cheerful, and lighthearted sonics along with crisp drum programming characterize the album.
Capturing the carefree fleeting moments in its short vignettes, the album also offers songs like "Pacific Northwest Memories" that cohesively unites his nostalgic ambient style with a punchy, ratcheting IDM. Leaving the album with "Des Canyons Aux Etoiles", a dreamy ambient song with tones that faintly reverberate from the canyon to the stars.
"Songs for Little Night Explorers" becomes a perfect album for the waning daylight hours of fall with its sonics that mimic the sounds of crickets and fire flies, along with washes of damp earthy ambience.
